"It was early in the pandemic and most of the city was still shut down," explains artist Nick Savides. "While taking a walk around the Meatpacking district as it was getting dark I came upon this scene, between the construction site of Thomas Heatherwick's Pier 55 Park to the south and Pier 57 to the north." Nick contrasts the movement of the waves with the old piles from Pier 56 to complement the contrasts in the red sky with the blue shadows. "The sun and the pier remind us of endings," says Nick.

Nick Savides

Brooklyn, New York

Nick learned to paint from his mother when he was a child, but it wasn’t until college that he decided to be a career artist. His realist images of New York City are inspired by the drama of the city–the changing light, the spontaneous magic. Nick begins his process with reference photographs from his daily life, often shooting the same scene at multiple times of the day. He brings the images back to his Brooklyn studio where he composes a scene in Photoshop, adding and subtracting elements from multiple photographs to achieve the perfect composition before beginning to paint. “As my artwork is realistic, one might be tempted to think they are copies from nature,” says the artist. “Really, they are composed–every detail is considered. It is a balance between what is seen, what is true to nature, and what can make a good painting.”
